Students who did not enroll in Army ROTC as a fresh man or a sophomore can receive equivalent credit in several different ways (see ''Two-Year Program" below). Admission to the Advanced Course is limited to students who meet all academic and physical require ments. Students in this course receive a subsistence allowance of $100 a month for 10 months during each of the two academic years, plus military service books and uniforms. After completion of the Advanced Course and college, students are eligible to be commissioned as second lieutenants in one of the Army's 17 specialty areas in either the Army National Guard, Army Reserve, or Active Army. Students' desires are a major factor in determining which service option is selected. The active duty obligation for those students select ed to enter the National Guard or Army Reserve is typi cally four months. Students entering the Active Army serve longer periods. ROTC students desiring to obtain advanced degrees may be granted a delay in reporting to their initial assignment. Scholarship Scholarships are available on a national and regional basis. Two and three year scholarships are available on a competitive basis to any qualified student of Biola University who desires to compete. An Army scholar ship will pay for most tuition costs, school supplies, and provide a monthly subsistence allowance of $100. The scholarship competition is conducted from November through February during the school year prior to when the scholarship would go into effect. Winners are announced in May and June, and the scholarship becomes effective at the start of the following Fall term.
